    If I’m not doing a wine tour, I’ll certainly be waiting for my return R/T rides to hope in and let me safely take my Santa Barbara Friends to their on demand directed locations! Great food, and lots of wonderful wine. It’s amazing how silly people can get in just three hours.

  2. I am participating once again after a few years on the sidelines. We are doing the famed Soufflé Suissesse from Le Gavroche and my old place, Michael’s Waterside. This is an unctuous gruyere cheese soufflé nested on a pool of cream. Come by with your chardonnay or pinot and indulge.

  3. P.S.
    Think about cooking 1000 soufflés to order in three hours.
